For the CPU cores temperature, they are rather low, <43C most of the time, hence the passive heatsink works well with 45W CPU. The temperapture of the H77 chipset is higher even with the bigger heatsink and fan (sys temp.), at around 45C, with room temperature at 23C. Another really satisfied customer
